My name is Jeanne Grant. I am an artist, recent widow, and live with 3 wonderful dogs and a talking cockatiel named Bozo. They are my babies and provide great companionship and entertainment daily.
I love animals, especially dogs. I love doing portraits of animals, and I especially have a heart for doing memory paintings of pets who have passed on.
I took oil painting classes as an adult in my 30s but basically I am a self-taught artist. My first love is graphite. I have learned colored pencil and watercolor. As I also do plein air (painting on site at different locations), I find that these 3 mediums work best and are most portable.
I start with a detailed graphite drawing, then start the watercolor paint. Sometimes to get fine details or the look I want, I will add more graphite, colored pencil, and/or Conte white pastel pencil.
Each of my portraits is a work of love for me. I hope to be able to share that with you.
